Below are some tips for online shoppers from Business Data Services, our Southcreek neighbor.
Top 5 safety tips for safer online shopping:
1. When submitting information online, make sure there is a “lock” icon on the browser’s status bar
(and that it is “locked”).
2. Keep your operating system, anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall software up to date. And, use anti-virus and/or firewalls
on every computer you own/use.
3. Use credit cards rather than debit cards. And, try to make all of your online transactions with one credit card, if you have
more than one.
4. Keep a record of what you pay for and always check your online purchases off against your statement[s].
